I Love My Breville Compact Juice Fountain BJE200XL
Looking for a get-it-done, compact, budget-friendly fruit and vegetable juicer? The Breville Compact Juice Fountain just may fit the bill.
My personal juicing background spans over thirty-plus years, inheriting the respect and love for fresh live juices from my Mom who used juice therapy to battle several health issues.
Few things can help you "naturally" improve your health and well-being as much as a regular juicing regimen. Drinking fresh, live vegetable and fruit juices is one of the smartest ways to pack in nutrients at their purest level. Which is why you should seek to purchase the best quality juicer that fits within your budget.
Why I Needed To Buy A New Juicer
Some time ago, I loaned my old juicer to a family member who really needed it. For quite some time, while I substituted with all-natural nutritional powders and supplements, I have to say, I missed my juicing routine. So I began looking for a modestly-priced model to "tide me over" until I could afford one of the top-of-the-line juicers on my wishlist.
Fast Forward ===> The Breville Compact Juice Fountain BJE200XL
You'll read from other sources all about its power, speed, durability, ease of cleaning and its ability to churn out some good quality juice ... and I've found all these points to be true. But here are a couple of other features that Breville thoughtfully built into the design:
... the feeder chute is 3-inches in diameter (a bit larger than others in the same price-range) which means I can usually fit some full-sized fruit/veggies which saves on prep time. (eg, whole cucumbers, beets, small apples, peeled lemons, etc.)
... the space-saving footprint goes beyond just having a small juicer base, I love the fact that this particular model comes with a receptacle to catch your fresh juices and it "nestles" into the recess on the front of the juicer. A smart design feature that saves even more counter space while you're juicing.
... a looped finger pull on the end of the electrical plug. Why is this so cool? For safety sake. I routinely disconnect the plug from the power source (and so should you) when opening and cleaning out the pulp catcher before juicing another batch of juice. Since my hands are normally still damp with juice, this handy finger-pull allows me to quickly unplug the machine without having to dry my hands thoroughly. (Another time-saver and a thoughtful safety feature)
If you're short on space, low on funds and need a good quality juicer . . . the Breville Compact Juice Fountain BJE200XL is a sure bet.
P.S. Getting Replacement Parts (Should It Become Necessary) Is No Problem
I also love the ease of purchasing replacement parts should it become necessary. Recently, the top cover accidently slipped out of my hand. Thank goodness, everything was okay but if it had cracked, I have a comfort in knowing that I can simply go online to Brevilleusa.com and order any replacement parts needed..
